On-line/Off-line manufacturing quality control through non-destructive testing techniques

Bullet Description

On-line/Off-line manufacturing quality control

The expertise of Ceit in the development and calibration of customised non destructive testing systems based on electromagnetic techniques can be applied to in-process and production-related quality control of manufacturing metallic components:

  • Grinding burns and grinding process control.

  • Residual stresses (created during the manufacturing process or by cold-working processes such as shot peening).

  • Control of thermal treatments, hardness gradients.

  • Cracks and pores, surface defects through Cr-coating.

  • Microstructural characterization, retained austenite.

Bullet Capabilities
